I have a confession. I couldn’t wait for my June travels to read The Heart Principle by Helen Hoang. I read it in May. My favorite of the three books is The Kiss Quotient, whose premise is so outlandish I couldn’t not like it.
Other books I read include It’s Raining Men by Rich Amooi, The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde (free at Project Gutenberg) and three Melissa Storm books, The Sunday Potluck Club, Wednesday Walks & Wags and Manic Monday, Inc. These were all quick, relatively short reads that I fit in before my travels.
And of course, I have to mention that My Best Break launched June 8. It’s available at all the major e-retailers. Please let me know if you’ve read it. It’s exciting to hear what readers think. In case you missed it, here are the details.
Here is the book description:
When an emotional story and a shocking secret rock her world, can this reporter write her way to happiness?
Cynthia Anderson is hungry for success. Having just won a second award, the small-town journalist searches for a compelling scoop to get her to the big leagues. But when her chance comes via writing a first-person account of egg retrieval, she argues with her controlling mother and ends up on the street.
Stuck moving into an above-garage apartment, Cynthia tries to ignore the fact her landlord’s son is also her embarrassing high school crush. Yet as they grow closer and he takes her to a harvesting appointment, the thirty-five-year-old go-getter begins to wonder if she’s pursuing the right goals.
When a devastating truth rears its ugly head, will Cynthia lose everything she’s ever wanted?
My Best Break is the charming fifth book in the My Best women’s fiction series. If you like dynamic characters, intriguing forks in the road, and found family, then you’ll love Carole Wolfe’s light-hearted drama.

What else I’m reading
I’m listening to John Dies at the End by David Wong. It is billed as “genre-bending” which makes sense as I have no idea what type of book this is. My college-aged son recommended it. I’m struggling a bit to get into it, but I’m hoping it will keep me company as I rack up the mileage this summer.
I’m not even going to attempt to guess what I will be ready to read in July. I suspect it is the backlog of mail that I come home to, but I’m sure I’ll find something to catch my interest.
Until next time…
